Wallace added to Reds’ squad

Munster have called David Wallace into their 41-man Heineken Cup squad for their quarter-final clash with Ulster.

Under ERC tournament rules, clubs can register a further three players to supplement their initial 38-player squads and with Wallace’s recovery from his cruciate knee injury gathering pace, he was added to the squad.

He is joined by prop Peter Borlase and winger Luke O’Dea while Ulster have also strengthened their squad with the inclusion of winger Chris Cochrane and number eight Iain Henderson.

Leinster have brought in victorious New Zealand World Cup lock Brad Thorn alongside Mark Flanagan and Tom Sexton.
